We are pleased to announce that the 60th ICFA Advanced Beam Dynamics Workshop on Future Light Sources (FLS2018) will take place in Shanghai, from 5 to 9 March, 2018. FLS2018 is hosted by the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, CAS.
The Future Light Source Workshop has a long history, dating back to the 1990s. The first FLS workshop was held in Grenoble, hosted by ESRF in 1996. It was followed by FLS 1999 in Argonne, FLS 2002 in Hyogo, FLS 2006 in Hamburg, FLS 2010 in Menlo Park, and FLS 2012 in Newport News.
In the spirit of the FLS workshop series, FLS2018 will bring together worldwide scientists to exchange ideas and best practices about accelerator based light sources, their new development trend and related key technologies. The workshop program will consist of plenary talks and working group sessions. The working groups will include Linac-based light sources, Ring-based light sources, Compact light sources, and Key technologies.
Shanghai is the financial center in China and a famous international metropolis. It is also a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as the Bund, City God Temple and Yu Garden as well as the financial district of Lujiazui with its extensive skyline. In its metropolis, one finds a unique blend of oriental and occidental cultures, which makes the visit to Shanghai a memorable experience.
We look forward to welcoming you in Shanghai.
